Greetings HeroClix fans!
Today’s Star Trek HeroClix: Tactics Series III set previews continues with the Columbia. Captained by Erika Hernandez, this ship is ready to boldly go where no one has gone before!
The Columbia possesses a single target with 6 range and she begins her first click with Charge and Toughness. A starting 7 movement lets you get into position to Charge early on to deliver 2 damage.
The Columbia if pushed to her second click trades Charge with Plasticity, which will make sure your opponent stays put so you can boldly deliver a reduction in your opponents hull plating. She also gains Willpower which lets her attack more without taking damage for the push.
Introduced on the Columbia’s second click is a special power called Always Have a Plan B which lets Columbia use Probability Control, but may only reroll its own close combat attacks. Her third click brings Close Combat Expert and remains for the rest of her dial.
Columbia is a vessel made early in the Federation. She’s meant for close combat, but doesn’t bring a lot of close combat protection. Remember to use the Federation team ability, when a ship using this team ability is attacked by a ship with one or more action tokens, modify this ship’s defense value by +1. Uncopyable.
At 50 points, Columbia is a great tie up piece that can help the battle go the way you need it to. Use her to keep multiple ships in place with her Plasticity, then use her for softening them up or clean up duty.
Thanks for reading todays preview and stay tuned for our next Star Trek HeroClix: Tactics Series III preview!
